2011: by Paul Craig Roberts

Quote:


2011: Information Clearing House: ICH


By Pau l Craig Roberts


The year 2011 will bring Americans a larger and
more intrusive police state, more unemployment
and home foreclosures, no economic recovery, more
disregard by the U.S. government of U.S. law,
international law, the Constitution, and truth, more
suspicion and distrust from allies, more hostility
from the rest of the world, and new heights of

media sycophancy.

The Audacity of Depression

Rage fatigue, plastic dirt and happy hour
in techno-totalitarian America

By Joe Bageant

One of the best things about the hundred or
so book festivals in America is that, with luck,
a writer can manage to get drunk with some
of his or her readers. And with more luck, the
readers pick up the tab. Bear in mind that 90%
of all real writers, people for whom writing is
their sole income, spend much of their time
counting their change in the rest room of the
hotels where they are being put up while on
tour. Believe me, there are better rackets than
writing.

By Francis A. Boyle

Future, what future? I am extremely pessimistic.

towards a third world war—a strategic nuclear
war. I do not believe that anything can be done
to prevent it. Continue

As the middle class in America continues

Struggling for Peace in the Season of Christmas

By Tom Turnipseed

With over a trillion dollars budgeted for the
military and defense related expenditures
in 2011 we should emulate Gandhi, Martin
Luther King, Jr., and Jesus who engaged in
civil disobedience and gave their all for peace
and poor people. Continue

The Government's One-way Mirror

By Glenn Greenwald

One of the hallmarks of an authoritarian
government is its fixation on hiding everything
it does behind a wall of secrecy while simultaneously
monitoring, invading and collecting files on
everything its citizenry does. Based on the Francis
Bacon aphorism that "knowledge is power,"
this is the extreme imbalance that renders the
ruling class omnipotent and citizens powerless.

The Trials of Henry Kissinger

The Making Of A War Criminal

Video Documentary

"A fascinating, bombshell documentary that
should shame Americans, regardless of
whether or not ultimate blame finally lies
with Kissinger. Should be required viewing
for civics classes and would-be public
servants alike." Continue
